Effective Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
This paper provides an overview of three major strands concerned with the effectiveness of teaching and learning in higher education. The paper is based on an extensive literature review and brings research findings from (1) process-outcome research, (2) information-processing concepts of teaching effectiveness and (3) constructivist instruction and the creation of effective learning environments together. Reviewing the literature it might be useful to synthesize and align the research from these different strands to apply an increasingly holistic perspective. Based on the evidence found in research studies and meta-analyses in each strand implications for effective learning and teaching in higher education will be outlined.
